Text Search




Enter the text to search for and click Search to get a list of statutes containing the text you entered. Tips:
  • Multiple words will be searched as a phrase. Entering Property Tax will return statutes that contain the complete phrase Property Tax.
  • Logical Operators are allowed. Hunting and Fishing will return statutes that containing both hunting and fishing. Hunting or Fishing will return statutes that contain hunting, fishing, or both.
  • Wild cards(*) are allowed. Entering Approp* will return statutes that contain Appropriation, Appropriate, Appropriated, etc..
  • Punctuation can also be used as operators. + = and, , = or. Searching for phrases that have , and will result in error unless you enclose the entire phrase in quotes.
The Filter option allows you to narrow your search results to a specific Title or Chapter. Here is a tip for using the filter option.
  • Use a dash (-) as the last character of your filter to refine searches. For example the filter "1-1" returns sections in 1-1, 1-10, 1-11, 1-12, etc. The filter "1-1-" returns only sections in Chapter 1-1.

     3-5-13.   Bond found insufficient by county commissioners--Determination of sufficiency by circuit court. In case the board of county commissioners should decide that a bond presented to it is insufficient, a reasonable time, not to exceed five days, shall be allowed the officer to supply a sufficient bond, and such board may take three days to consider the approval of any bond. If such board refuse or neglect to approve the bond of any county officer or township officer elect, he may present the same to the judge of the circuit court and serve notice of a time of hearing thereof upon the board. Upon due proof of such service being made to the judge at the time therein named, he shall, unless good cause for delay appear, proceed to hear and determine the sufficiency of the bond, and may approve the same, and such approval shall be in all respects valid.
